              other-line linked haiku   september 1985-may 1987

4 Sale

off the cell floor they lap water and blood of the dead

spring morning a chemical spill
summer afternoon a chemical spill
autumn evening a chemical spill
winter night a chemical spill

even if we live we'll starve

a little girl on his lap

no concept of sin before columbus arrived

let's get together
overthrow the world
plant morning-glories & beets

peaceman finally admits 'the west can go to hell'

unable to comprehend the end
for the bomb

one twelfth of the world is white male

separation of church and state
separation from church and state

information technology computer base surveillance


Poetry Canada 10:1 1989
